"This decision was very difficult, in the past year I got very attached to the team. Each one of them is a top notch player and I am very pleased that I had the opportunity to work with them. But right now I feel that I have given them everything I could.

Many thanks to clawz, Fyzu, 9impulse, pkmk and SA, as well as to the entire media team that has worked with me throughout this journey. Keep cheering on for NAVI Apex, they really need your support right now. They will definitely blast off the Apex scene again, I’m sure of it!
